This is the stickiest sweetest thing EVAH!

OMFG, I’m dying from the cuteness of this. Can’t. get. away. from. the. cuteness.

Getting to know you… getting to know all about you. The couples edition.

I was reading dooce last night where  she completed this meme. So I decided to be a copy cat and answer these questions for the husband & myself. Please to enjoy!

What are your middle names?
My middle name is Duplan ~ funny name you say? Well, it wasn’t always my middle name. Originally -at birth- my mother & father gave me a lovely middle name Leigh, in case you were wondering, and when we got married I changed my maiden name to my middle name. Rob’s middle name is Arthur. And it is his father’s middle name & it was his grandfather’s middle name & his great grandfather’s middle name. Since we didn’t have a boy child we couldn’t carry on this little tradition. Although, I guess we could have given one of the gremlins Arthur as a middle name. Added some fodder for the psych appointments.

How long have you been together?
We’ve been married thirteen and a half years, together over 18 years. Yep, that’s half my lifetime.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Roughly two weeks, I’d say.

Who asked whom out?
He asked me for my phone number then called me the next day.

How old are each of you?
We’re both 38, he’s 19 days older than me. Which I like to throw in his face every time he tells me I’m old.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Mine since Rob doesn’t have any siblings.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
I think the thing that causes the most difficulty is the children. WTH were we thinking having kids?! No, I’m kidding! But honestly, we have very differing parenting styles and I think this is one of our biggest challenges.

Did you go to the same school?
Nope. He went to school in one city & I went to school in another city.

Are you from the same home town?
No. I think I made it fairly obvious with my answer to the last question.

Who is smarter?
I’m not sure. We share a brain these days so it’s 6 of one / half dozen of another. I’d have to say that he is definitely smarter in some areas & I’m smarter in others. Together we know a lot of useless information.

Who is the most sensitive?
Oooooh, that would be me.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Almost every restaurant that we go to we can take the gremlins but if we’re going to eat out just the two of us, then I suppose it would be La Fondue.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?

Who has the craziest exes?
Well we’ve been together for so dang long that we never had a chance to accumulate a bunch of crazy exes.

Who has the worst temper?
That would be Rob.

Who does the cooking?
Me, that is when I’m not being persuaded to go out to eat -yet again- by Rob & the gremlins. I try to cook, I suggest things but since I’m not a short order cook & can’t make what each individual wants to eat for dinner on that given night, the restaurant ALWAYS wins.

Who is the neat-freak?
Freak? Don’t call me a freak. Just cause I like to have things tidy doesn’t make me a freak!

Who is more stubborn?
Um, this is a tie. We are both extremely stubborn. And now we have two ridiculously stubborn children to add to the stubbornness mix.

Who hogs the bed?
With a King sized bed there is plenty of room for two or four people. Before you go all, “oohhhh, who else do you have in your bed?!” I’m referring to those two stubborn children.

Who wakes up earlier?
Hahahahahaha. Me. Cause Pumpkin comes into our bedroom, walks straight up to my side of the bed and in not so hushed tones tells me to get up & make her some breakfast. This usually occurs at some point between the hours of  5-6am EVERY DAMN day of the week. Yes, even on Saturday & Sunday.

Where was your first date?
Movie theater

Who is more jealous?
Probably me. Thank the stars above that I have nothing to be jealous about.

How long did it take to get serious?
We were serious almost right away. Pretty much within a month and a half we were dating exclusively.

Who eats more?
Rob does. Now. But there was a couple times ~when I was preggers~ that I could out eat him.

Who does the laundry?
Let’s see… hmmm…. d’oh, that’s right, I do. All the laundry. All the time.

Who’s better with the computer?
Hands down, Rob. He had one of those first personal computers that was the size of a baby elephant – well not really- but close and my first computer was one he got for me when he worked at Apple. So he’s had years more experience with computers & it has always been the field he’s worked in.

Who drives when you are together?
It’s a toss up. If it’s my car, then I usually drive. If it’s his car, then he drives. Although lately I’ve been having him drive for me. Laziness? Sorta.

If you’d like to participate in this stolen meme, then copy & paste into your own blog, email, facebook, myspace, whathaveyou, and answer the questions. Add your link in the comment section so I know & can read all about you.

Because I love Beaker so much I couldn’t resist or I don’t have enough time to come up with a real blog post.

I’m too chicken to do NaNoWriMo so I’m doing NoBloShoeMo instead

For the last two years I’ve contemplated participating in NaNoWriMo and last year I came pretty damn close to signing up for it. But as the title of this post indicates, I’m too chicken to do it. Well that and November is a notoriously busy month for me with waaaaaaaay tooooooo many other things that have to be done. Heh.

So to be in the spirit of all those souls who are brave enough, crazy enough, glutton for punishment enough, or whatever, I’ve decided to join this funny lady in participating in NoBloShoeMo which suits me just fine because I am a show FIEND! I love shoes! I want to marry shoes! But alas I am already married.  In fact, the husband is often known to say to me, “did you buy one in every color?”  And!!  OMG!!  I am so thrilled to report that we now have a DSW shoe store in our little town.  Huzzah!!  The Mecca of shoes is in my back yard.  Well just about… it’s actually down a couple streets then over one, but hey, who’s keeping track?!

Anywhoooo, I’ve posted my first photo for NoBloShoeMo since it’s still November 1st where I’m at & it is not passed midnight & the clock hasn’t turned back so all that equals I haven’t missed a day yet! Whoot! We’ll see how the remainder of the month goes. As I said, busy time, busy time.

Enough for now,

Friday Bullets – 2nd edition

OK. And now for more Friday bullets.  I can hardly put a sentence together any more without getting distracted by twitter & the 100s of emails I’m getting from twittermoms.  Shiny objects!  That’s why bullets are so great.  It doesn’t even have to be a whole sentence!  Single words people, a single word will suffice.  Excellent.

Things I’m excited about today:

  • Twittermoms Wine Club event is tonight! 
  • The husband is coming home soon.
  • I won’t have to make the gremlin’s lunches next week!
  • Halloween
  • We can go back to our regularly scheduled routines.
  • Candy – Candy Corn Pumpkins specifically.
  • Fall – except that it’s 90 degrees outside today.
  • Twittermoms Wine Club event.  It’s wine!  It’s twitter!  It’s fun, funny, women!
  • No homework for Honey bunny.
  • I don’t have to get up early tomorrow.
  • We can stay in our PJs all day all weekend, if we so desire.
  • Nothing scheduled ALL WEEKEND LONG.
  • Twittermoms Wine Club event – yeah, I know, it made the list three times. But truly I am so excited about this.  We are tasting a Petite Sirah and I don’t ususally drink red wines so I’m curious about the taste.  I’ll let you know how it goes in a post later.

Well, that wraps up this bullet list for the week.
